Monticello, Ark.– Entergy Arkansas presented Hood Packaging with a rebate check in the amount of $98,422 for energy efficiency improvements implemented at the plant last year.
Entergy Arkansas offers 16 programs through which residential and business customers can receive incentives and rebates for implementing energy efficiency improvements in their facilities.
Early last year representatives from Hood Packaging met with CLEAResult, a contractor that implements some of the programs for Entergy Arkansas, to discuss ways to save on their electric bill. The rebate was a result of compressed air project. The compressed air project saved energy by eliminating old machines that were operating inefficiently.
Curt Socia, Hood Packaging Monticello Maintenance Superintendent, thanked Entergy for making the program available and easy to implement. He said “We are very pleased with the results and particularly happy with the can-do attitudes of everyone at CLEAResult and Process & Power for engineering and installation of the air compressor system. They helped immensely in making the project goals achievable as well as improving our plant in a cost-effective manner. Our plant and the community is better off as a result of the efforts.” They hope to implement other energy-saving initiatives in the future.
“If you have even had a thought about making improvements to your home or business that would save energy, I encouraged you to call us,” said Tandee White, customer service manager for Entergy Arkansas. “We have programs that fit almost every need – residential, commercial, industrial, city, school, etc. Our partners for these programs help make it easy to manage and calculate your savings. The key is to call before you make the change. In some cases, to award rebates, they need to collect data before improvements are made.” For more information on energy efficiency programs through Entergy Arkansas, go to www.entergyarkansas.com and click on Entergy Solutions or call 1-877-212-2420.
